Postgraduate Poster Event

What is the PG Poster Exhibition?
This is an annual event which gives students the opportunity to present a poster detailing their project work in an informal way to faculty, fellow students, the Informatics Industrial Advisory Board and selected external guests.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to:
- focus and reflect on project work
- set targets
- inform potential employers, faculty and colleagues
- gain important feedback
- gain invaluable experience by presenting work and ideas
- network with potential employers
The idea of the poster exhibition is for participants to present a coherent story of what they are working on.
PGR Students: £100 for the Best Poster and two Runner Up Prizes of £50 each
Informatics MSc Students: £100 for the Best Poster and two Runner Up Prizes of £50 each
Networking and Opportunities
It is a very good opportunity to think about the scope of current project work, and will be very useful in helping plan the rest of the work. Perhaps most importantly the exhibition provides participants with a chance to get some feedback and ideas from peers, members of faculty and industry guests.
At previous years' events, a number of projects attracted interest from attending companies with students being offered interviews and collaboration opportunities. All full-time Masters students and those in the second year of a part-time Masters are strongly encouraged to participate.
Who is it for?
Part-time students in their first year can also take part if they wish.
Please note that the poster presentation is compulsory and marked for MSc Advanced Computer Science.
2nd Year PGR students are required to present as part of their Student's Report in their Annual Review.
Other PGR years are also welcome to present a poster at the event; although not compulsory it would allow participants to gather useful input for current and future research.
